When we were kids, our parents were comforted in knowing where we were, virtually every night.
Remember curfews and those public service announcements we used to hear on TV that stated, “It’s 10:00 o’clock–do you know where your kids are?”
Our parents were comforted in knowing we were in the sanctuary of our homes, often tucked away in the even deeper sanctuary of our bedrooms.
But, because of digital technology, any danger we may have been exposed to as kids outside our homes is now a clear and present danger inside our homes – especially in our kids‘ bedrooms.
That’s why a curfew for digital technology is a good idea for any child. Choose a reasonable time for them to unplug so that you know where your kids are.
